Default HIS Radeon HD 5770 or XFX Radeon HD 4870?

Which is better? Good prices on both right now, but the HIS is on sale right now to make it only 10 dollars price difference from XFX...

HIS radeon HD 5770 1GB GDDR5
XFX Radeon HD 4870 512MB GDDR5

So I am guessing that it would be smarter to buy the HIS... but i don't know the differences.

Personally, I'd go with the 5770.

I own the Asus 5770. on a Asus Rampage II extreme mobo with an I7 920. Runs every game very fast.
